Thinking about the 1950's is so nice because that was an era of time when things were much simpler. The complexities of modern day technology, politics, and everything else can be overwhelming at times and things just felt a lot easier way back then than it does today. The music was simple and sweet, neighbors and company were simple and sweet, and so were daily tasks and activities! Anyone who can truly remember this era of time knows how wonderful it was. People who were teenagers or young adults during the 1950's are now in their eighties and that means that the era of the 50's can be classified as being "iconic". Buildings that were built in the 50's stand tall and proud to this day and that just goes to show how advanced society was, even back then. The 1950's are now almost seven decades in the past and each decade that has followed those golden years has progressed a little more and more for the better. Society must learn from some type of framework and the way people did things and went about their lives in the 50's was a perfect place to start developing change and progression! Nostalgic things like fashion and style, food recipes, presidential candidates and more are always fun to reflect on when living in a much more modern day and age. Things are so different now than they were back then! Take this quiz to see how much 1950's nostalgia you're really aware of!
